BUG: '\' is not a working copy [v1.6.5, Windows XP]

It seems like I have a bug with TortoiseSVN 1.6.5 (last stable).

So, what happens? I have Windows XP SP3 on my machine, and
I have a working directory on my disk - C:\work. And I have
a subst'ed drive W: => C:\work just for easier handling
of my code.

And I have edited two files,
C:\work\include\dir\file.hpp and C:\work\src\dir\file.cpp
(Or W:\include\dir\file.hpp and W:\src\dir\file.cpp, respectively)

Now I try to commit my changes. I go to File Explorer and
start Commit from the root directory W:\ After that a list
of changed files with both files appears (it's OK), then
I enter a comment and press OK. And the log screen comes
showing an error "'\' is not a working copy" in red.

However, if I start Commit from C:\work (which is actually
exactly the same directory) everything works fine!

So it seems to me that TortoiseSVN has problems with root
directory as a tree root.

BTW, same commits from svn command-line client both work fine.
